July 7, 1996:

ASF has received a letter from Eduardo Vetere, U.N. Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Division, dated, June 14, 1996.

Mr. Vetere states that the Division is "beginning to consider the question of the transnational theft of automobiles," and ..."part and parcel... the effectiveness of various anti-theft devices, including the steering wheel lock."

ASF apprised the International Center for the Prevention of Crime about this international auto theft crisis, and awaits their response.

As steering locks make auto theft easier, continue to cause public endangerment, and have no merit whatsoever, ASF continues to seek organizations to address this atrocity.
